Gixen has a batch feature where if there's multiple items you're interested in but only need one, you can set it up to try to snipe all of them but have it automatically stop the others after you win one auction.
Dude will trade this Leader 725 for some Nike foamposites or some car audio stuff.
He never replied to my offer to trade for some Arc Audio amps though...
San Francisco Mission Bike - great components
So I'm looking for a commuter, 10 miles round trip to work maybe some longer rides for exercise a couple times a week.
And don't believe that Competitive Cycling-esq bull**** in the ad. It's a bad beater bike made from crap that people would normally throw away.
You couldn't pay me to own that bike.Kickass single speed, built in the Mission in S.F. (where bikes are built to ride strong but look like **** so they don't get stolen) by a mechanic who went on to wrench for the Olympic Cycling Team in Colorado Springs.
Vintage Raleigh lugged frame set (likely Technium), I would say it's a 58cm (I'm just 6' and fits me great). Bike has lots of tasty bits throughout:
Cinelli bars, Specialized S-Works crankset, DKG Strongarm Brake Bridge (by the guy who invented the brake booster - DKG CNC Machine Shop Home Page), powerful cantilever brakes (not sure brand), chain in good shape, front rim is SunRingle ME14A (worth $50 on its own), Shimano Deore XT Parallax 110 fron hub with Shimano XT quick-release skewer, good condition Vittoria Randonneur Pro high-performance city trekking tires, cool comfy and light Schwinn seat. !!!
This bike looks rough on purpose, but is fine underneath. Hell, take it to Groody Bros, have it blasted and painted, and it's a gold mine. The components that went into this bike more than justify the price - first $300 takes it.
No, not that one.
However, keep checking CL here in KC. People look to get rid of their Pure Fix or Big Shot bikes, once they realize that there are more hills here than they realized. They will want way too much, but will take less.
FWIW, here's an example: This bike has been listed for weeks: Trek Soho Bicycle if you are close to 6', I'd offer a $100.
I own one of those, and I like it. Cost me $425 (perhaps he is including pedals in his $500).
Looks like he changed the seat (the stock seat is sh1t as were the stock pedals) and took off the freewheel, so he might have that lying around. A Philasteve said, seems like an okay option if it fits you.
Cinelli Fixie Track / Messenger Bike
Looks like a beater someone stripped down, repainted and put some "Cinelli" decals on. I'm no authority on Cinelli, but those welds look way too boogered up to be quality. Thoughts?
It's just me being sentimental, but of all of my bikes, this one would be the last to go. It doesn't have the pizzaz of a Bianchi or a Big Block, but it's a good bicycle. As I mentioned, the one on CL here in KC has been there for some time, but the owner keeps bumping it. I think that one could get it for $200 or less.
The 2014 version is called a "District S", but I think that it is essentially the same bike. District S - Trek Bicycle
